I am running a mixed model in SAS Studio (V9.4) on a Windows 10, 64 bit computer with 6 GB of installed RAM. My model has 2 fixed effects and 2 random effects. The data set is within a xlsx file and has 104,000 observations and 8 variables (total file size = 3500 KB). I get the following error when trying to run my code.
ERROR: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of insufficient memory
NOTE: PROCEDURE MIXED used (Total process time):
proc mixed DATA=Variation_study;
class PlayerID TeamID SeasonID PositionID;
model DepVar = PositionID WinLoss;
random INT SeasonID / subject=PlayerID;
random INT SeasonID/ subject=TeamID;
When I run this code;
PROC OPTIONS GROUP= MEMORY ;

Probably. Check the RAM assigned to your VM.
Your random statements may also be causing computational issues. Add one in at a time.
I'll also move this to stat stat procs to see if someone else has better suggestions.
